Opera’s web browser includes an integrated password manager that stores your user name, password and online forms that may be required to connect to websites. We have already seen how to manage passwords in Internet Explorer with the Credentials Manager – and how to manage passwords in Chrome. Now we want to see how we can view and manage the passwords stored in Opera under Windows.
Manage passwords stored in Opera
Open your Opera web browser and use the Options button in the upper left corner to select settings. Then click Privacy and Security in the left area.
If the Offer to store passwords I entered on the Web option is enabled, Opera stores all your credentials. To view the passwords, click Manage Saved Passwords . You will receive a list of all your registered passwords. Passwords are hidden by asterisks. To see them, click on the link Show.
Opera asks you to enter your Windows login password. This is a good security measure recently added by Opera.
After entering the password is displayed.
Manage here and delete the saved passwords by clicking’x’. If Opera has offered to save a password, your password will not be saved and the page will be added to a Never saved password list. You can also delete all URLs that you have saved in this list. When you are finished, click the Done button.
Although Opera stores passwords in encrypted form, if you do not want to use the password manager built into Opera, you can try some desktop or online password managers to store your passwords.
